Director-producer teams, apply for the new Venice Biennale College!

Launched this year by the Biennale di Venezia, the Venice International Film Festival, the Biennale College - Cinema is an exciting initiative to support director-producer teams working on their first or second feature.

A community of selected filmmakers from around the world will work alongside an invited team of international experts and tutors to explore the aesthetics of micro-budget filmmaking and the new integrated models of production, which engage with an audience from the outset.  

After a first 10-day workshop in Venice for 15 selected projects in January 2013, up to three teams will be invited to a second 15-day workshop between February and March and supported with €150,000 in order to produce and screen the projects at the 2013 Venice International Film Festival.

The call for applications is open only to director-producer teams. Directors must be working on their first or second feature and producers must have produced at least three short films distributed and/or presented at festivals. 

There is no age limit and no participation fee. Participants will have to cover their travel costs but there will be the possibility – for participants travelling from outside Europe – to request a scholarship to partially or totally cover these costs.
